    Thanks everyone. Haven't been around much, but that's how life is sometimes (uber busy with grad school and work), weekends like this are a good example why (spending the entire weekend doing...

    Re: The Best Company for PSU's?

    The low end Corsairs (VX and CS) are supposedly junk. The TX series has had a update that cheapened up the internals, not that it isn't bad but it is not as good as it used to be (See...

    Re: radeon 6000 series soon?

    The tweaks in the 9000 series were so small it was more or less a rebrand. Really, a dieshrink is not enough to qualify for a new series name :). Later die shrinks caused things like the 275 to be...

    Re: radeon 6000 series soon?

    Not like the GeForce 9000 series at all. They were more or less rebrands, and the reason I stopped paying attention to Nvidia. The 6000 series has a new shader configuration (from 4 + 1 to 4)....

    Re: Win7 ISO software

    For general disk burning, I use InfraRecorder. It's GNU GPL v3 software, free and opensource, plus it works pretty well.

    Re: Micro Center

    Microcenter is the best place to get Intel processors, especially the "true" i7 (9xx series). Their motherboard prices are at about the right price, not the cheapest, but if you buy the motherboard...
  8. Re: Any right handed, left eye dominant shooters out there?

    My dad is the exact opposite, he's a southpaw that is right eye dominate. He has learned to use his left eye for aiming. One way of doing this is to place translucent scotch tape (not the crystal...

    Re: C++ compiler

    Um, that didn't really make any sense. What would you translate C++ to? Translating C++ to assembly is what a compiler does. Are you a robot?

  11. Re: HTPC or continue to pay way too much for Cable TV?

    IMHO, for a computer to be a HTPC it must have a TV tuner card, hence you are at a minimum receiving OTA digital TV, or you are piping your cable through it as well (like me) and use you HTPC's DVR...

    Re: I think Nvidia hit a winner

    I've seen a wide range of results. HardOCP was seeing them more neck and neck, Bit-tech showed the 460 1GB near the 5850 in some cases. The Bit-tech power consumption is very suspect (no other review...

    Re: Name that song

    The melody is "Alex F" see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axel_F, so it must be one of the remixes, or something that samples it extensively.
  14. Re: When will moores law hit a big hard atomic wall?

    Well increasing the physical size causes manufacturability issues, hell just ask Nvidia how easy large dies are to make (they can't make a 512 shader GF100 due to defects as it's over a 500mm^2 die)....
  15. Re: When will moores law hit a big hard atomic wall?

    Moore's Law specifically deals with the doubling of transistor counts in commercial chips every 22 months or so (due to physics we realize this via feature size shrinks).



    Well, if you want to...

    Re: How cool is EVGA? I'm about to find out.

    IIRC the 216-core is the same as the 196 core. Nvidia changed it (firmware unlock) after the Radeon 4000 series kicked the 196 core 260 in the teeth.

    Re: Ati Xgp

    AMD basically pulled it a while back. Supposedly, they have a more "open" solution coming "soon" (possibly USB3.0 based (it has the bandwidth) or using the standard PCIe external connectors).
